Stephen,
It gets even better; before 1964; even if it had a copyright notice, it had to also be registered; no copyright registration within one year of notice; no copyright. This trick was very common with comic books and pulps, they never filed copyright registrations. I havs many hundreds of the pulps and comics waiting to scan; to make it easier I slice them apart and then donate them to collectors when I am finsihed; but I can do a 100 page pulp in less than half an hour this way with the scanners which I have. These are the pages which I am talking about:

I am working on several other pages for appliances, tools, electronic equipment, etc. ... .
